Richmond Puppy Training Day Care

Hello, I'm Fiona and I'm a registered UK dog trainer with the Animal Behaviour and Training Council and my premises is fully licensed with Hounslow Council.

I work exclusively with puppies, supporting people with busy schedules, to ensure their puppy receives essential early life training and socialisation that prepares them to become great adult dogs.

I offer an onlinle, early 'best start' puppy consultation that's full of great tips and advice about how to give your puppy a pawsome start.  This can be booked for just after your puppy's arrival.

My residential day school for puppies is a new concept and there's nothing else quite like it.  I wanted to give puppies the best start, without the worry of being overwhelmed at a busy day care centre or waiting too long for a dog walker to arrive for just a puppy visit. Here's more about what I offer and please get in touch to book your puppy's place!

Your puppy comes to day school for a curriculum of learning and fun.

This is a comprehensive service for anybody who wants to give their puppy the best start and an excellent way for new puppy owners who have busy schedules to ensure their puppy gets the training and socialisation they need in the early months, when it has the most impact on their puppy's life.

I start by visiting you at your home for a one hour introductory consultation. (There are options available to manage social distancing safely, which we can discuss).

When your puppy is fully vaccinated and ready to begin, I will come to your home to collect your puppy for a progressive 3 hour session of training & socialisation. Each session will be fun and everything will work at your puppy's pace.  Another benefit of this will be maintaining your puppy's routine for feeding times and supporting their toilet training regime.

Not only that, you will receive regular progress reports and weekly summary videos to show you what your puppy can do. To complete the circle of learning, we invite you to a private training session to teach you how to continue your puppy's training and development.
